Reliable Power for Communications Networks
Understanding and Managing Battery Plant Vulnerabilities
By Alcatel-Lucent

Published 2008, Posted August 2008




Reliable power is essential for the continuous and successful operation of today’s complex communications infrastructures. The equation is simple - no power, no network. Preventing power loss has become more difficult due to the proliferation of communications equipment in remote locations.

This white paper summarizes the Eight Ingredient Framework developed at Bell Labs, which is widely used by industry, government and academia to analyze aspects of the communications infrastructure. It then goes on to provide a deeper analysis of the intrinsic vulnerabilities of a fundamental unit of the power system - the battery plant - and how to cope with these challenges.
